Conte at a crossroads after derby defeat

Inter are not in crisis after a 2-1 derby defeat but Antonio Conte needs to be more flexible as he finds himself at a crossroads, writes Richard Hall.

Defeat in the Derby Della Madonnina is not a disaster for the Nerazzurri but it does highlight a problem. Antonio Conte has been more than vocal since the Europa League Final and the message has been “back me and my plan.”

Inter have done just that, both in support of his tenure and in the market but something is just not quite right. The Milan Derby defeat showed that there are some issues that still need to be addressed. Conte has made incredible progress with the team but perhaps now is his time to compromise and become more flexible.
